I agree with a lot of what you see happening. Only differences I really see are these:
Fedotenko is back as he is the definition of a torts guy who really thrives playing under torts and can play in almost any situation. He creates a lot of scoring chances he just can't finish, if he played a full season with players who can finish he may have a lot more points.
EC will be back as he can be a 13th or 14th forward and step in to a top 6 role if someone goes down or he can be serviceable on the 4th line getting some PP time and scoring clutch shootout goals. He isn't expensive, he will be back.
Prospal is the wild card. He was a catalyst for us making the playoffs and if his play continues to impress in the playoffs i don't know how they can't bring him back unless he wants to call it a career.
Zucc is not going to be a regular unless his defensive play improves and he really needs to put up points. His hustle is there and he leaves it all on the ice but for whatever reason torts does not have much faith in him.
I agree with pretty much everything else you said.

Sign Richards, Sign RFA's ( packline, Sauer, Boyle )
Unfortunately sign Gilroy for under a 1 mil. He becomes spare F and D
let all UFA's go because of cap , Vinny ,Feds, Eminger, McCabe
Buy out Drury
Trade EC for late pick
I still say they keep Wolskii since he has offensive skills. Try and find the right C for him. He has 40 pts or more in 4 seasons
DZ , Vtank, Hagelin are regulars. my prediction
Dubinsky, Richards, Gaborik
Wolski, Anisimov, Callahan
Hagelin , Stepan, Zuccarello
Avery, Boyle, Prust
Del Zotto, Valentenko
